Movers and Shakers: 5 Things to do in Shaker Heights

Shaker Heights is a very diverse suburb of Cleveland, established in 1911, and my soon-to-be new neighborhood! I am so excited to explore and eat my way through this very fun and exciting town. Technically, I live in the Buckeye Shaker neighborhood because I live in Shaker Square, which is part of the City of…

#ThankfulThursday: A Piece of Plastic

On March 6, I was delivered a lovely pink plastic bracelet (I mean, I purchased it – it didn’t just show up out of the blue – side note, if you find yourself wanting to send me lovely gifts, shoot me an email for my address 🙂 ). Inside this piece of plastic was a…

50 shades of oh hell nah.

I’m currently on a business trip to a new place and I decided to watch a movie this evening to pass sometime… I chose the wrong movie to see and now I want to share my 50 thoughts I had whilst watching it: I downloaded this soundtrack before seeing the movie, I can tell from this opening…

It’s crazy how much our lives change from one year to the next… When I look back on where I was 1, 2, even 5 years ago from today via Timehop, I am constantly amazed at where I thought my life was heading at that time. It’s kind of crazy how our lives can change…

Be inspired this year

It feels like every year people publish list after list of things you should do, places you should travel to, the new “superfood” you HAVE to eat, etc… it’s all a little uninspiring, don’t you think? People post all these things tell you what to do and how to do it, and they really don’t…

Not where I’m supposed to go

Sometimes, when I’m sitting on a plane about to take off to some far away destination I start to panic. It strikes me the moment our wheels lift off the ground. I fear that I am not on the right plane. I fear that I have somehow passed through the gate check due to a…

Summer Solstice

Summer storms roll in like trains, suddenly and in the blink-of-an-eye. These summer storms are my favorite part of this very, very hot season; the storms bring with them a nice cool breeze and beautiful rain. Rain has always amazed me. I’m pretty partial to things that force you to sit inside and curl up…

Life is weird. Life is crazy.

I read somewhere on the worldwide web that, “being totally busy is a wasteful way of living,” and it really stuck with me. Work has been crazy the last few weeks and I feel like I slipped into a routine of waking up before dawn, driving to work, working till the sunset and then driving…
